Full Cover for Medical Expenses
Expenses such as surgeon fees, intensive care, prescribed diagnostic imaging tests and prescribed non-surgical cancer treatments are covered in full up to your annual benefit limit (HK$25 million, HK$30 million, HK$35 million and HK$40 million for the Advance, Advance Pro, Deluxe and Deluxe Pro plans) for treatments in your chosen area of cover (see Remark 3).
Generous Protection for Cancer Treatment
With this plan, you don't need to worry about medical bills adding up if you're diagnosed with cancer. We'll waive your chosen deductible (if any) so that your cancer treatment expenses will be covered straightaway. What's more, treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy (including but not limited to proton therapy), targeted therapy, immunotherapy and more are fully covered up to your annual benefit limit so you can focus on recovery.
Mental Health Support
This plan is the first VHIS plan in Hong Kong to prioritise mental health, including full cover for inpatient psychiatric treatments, as well as a free 24-hour Mental Health Service Hotline which offers personalised emotional support and face-to-face counselling services (see Remark 4).
More Affordable Healthcare with Deductible Options
Choose from four deductible options to lower your premium: HK$0, HK$12,000, HK$40,000, HK$80,000. A deductible is the amount of eligible expenses that you must pay each year. Bupa will cover the remaining amount up to the benefit limit.

You can choose to lower or remove your deductible within 30 days before the renewal date without re-underwriting once at age 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, 80 or 85. This provides more flexibility for budget planning after retirement.
Comprehensive Care for a Full Recovery
This plan offers extended follow-up for any condition. You can enjoy full cover for all related outpatient expenses within 90 days before or 365 days after confinement or day case procedure. The enhanced benefits also include coverage for rehabilitation, consultation with a registered Chinese medicine practitioner, prosthetic device and so on. You'll be well protected in case of any chronic diseases or serious illnesses like cancer.
Outpatient Surgery in Hospitals and Clinics
With no minimum length of stay, surgeries performed in a clinic or day case unit of a hospital are also covered.
Cashless Treatment
With your Bupa medical card, you can enjoy cashless treatment at designated private hospitals and Bupa Hero appointed service providers (including diagnostic centres, specialist clinics, etc.) in Hong Kong. For overseas hospitalisation, you can enjoy this service at Bupa network hospitals in your chosen area of cover by calling Bupa to make the necessary arrangements. We'll settle your eligible expenses directly with the hospital or service provider (subject to your pre-approved limit) (see Remarks 5-8).
Enhanced Cover Including Unknown Pre-existing Conditions
Your policy can cover unknown pre-existing conditions and congenital conditions with symptoms appearing or diagnosed from age 8, subject to the policy's General Exclusions. You can also choose cover for pre-existing conditions, subject to underwriting and an additional premium.
Guaranteed Renewal
Bupa guarantees that your policy is renewable every year for life, regardless of any changes in your health after your policy is in effect (see Remark 9).
Eligible for Tax Deduction
This plan is certified as VHIS compliant. You can claim a tax deduction on qualifying premiums up to a limit of HK$8,000 per insured person each year (see Remark 10).
Medical Check-up Benefit (applicable to the Deluxe plans only)
Receive a free comprehensive health assessment each year, starting from the second policy year, at one of our designated health screening centres in Hong Kong (for insured persons aged 18 or above). Or, choose your own provider and claim up to HK$4,800 for check-up services in your chosen area of cover.

For eligible expenses covered under the Certified Plan but incurred outside your chosen area of cover, benefits shall be payable according to the VHIS Standard Plan Terms and Benefits.  

If you're diagnosed with a critical illness, you may need to take time off work or even quit your job. This combined with the costs of treatment may affect your budget, your quality of life and even your family. Therefore, apart from medical protection, you should also consider adding the Supplementary Critical Illness Benefit to make up for any lost income and pay for your living expenses, such as mortgage, daily bills, child's tuition fees, etc. if you have a covered critical illness.

Bupa Supplementary Critical Illness Benefit provides worldwide coverage for up to 98% of all serious critical illnesses (see Remark 19), including 80 major critical illnesses (such as cancer, heart attack, stroke) and 5 early stage critical illnesses (see Remark 20). It also pays for an additional cancer claim if you're diagnosed with cancer (including recurrence or distant metastasis) after the major critical illness has been paid, so you can be worry-free and prepared for the unexpected. This benefit offers triple protection for up to 3 separate conditions at different times throughout your life—Major Critical Illness Benefit, Early Stage Critical Illness Benefit and Additional Cancer Benefit, with a lifetime benefit amount up to HK$3,300,000 in aggregate (see Remark 21).

Bupa safe

Based on the benefits of the Gold plan. Please refer to the Schedule of Critical Illness Benefits for the lifetime benefit amount of other plan options.

We know that patients who are diagnosed with cancer can be overwhelmed by ongoing treatments, complicated medical procedures and so on.

What's more, you can enjoy video consultation services to consult our selected general practitioners through a video call comfortably and safely at home.
